Five facts about Baptist’s new Groner Fellow

Name and background.

Jared Moses, Memphis native and graduate of White Station High School, The University of Memphis (Bachelor of Business Administration) and Georgetown University (Master of Science in Health Systems Administration). While at Georgetown, he completed an internship at the mid-Atlantic region’s largest hospital.

Why health care?

He was always interested in medicine. He first wanted to be a doctor, but after working with his father – a heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) technician at the Veterans Affairs (VA) hospital in Memphis – he saw a different side of health care. Since then, he wanted to put his business skills to use in health care administration.

Why Baptist?

Our success with Baptist OneCare – our electronic health record – and other fellows’ recommendations played a role, but one of the biggest reasons is that Baptist Union City is his grandmother’s hospital of choice.

Bonus Question: What is the Groner Fellowship?

The Groner Fellowship is a Baptist tradition that began more than 50 years ago to develop the next generation of health care leaders. Groner fellows spend a year shadowing senior leadership and working on projects across the Baptist system. The fellowship is named for Dr. Frank Groner, Baptist’s second president and CEO. A Tennessee Health Care Hall of Famer, he grew our original hospital into the largest private hospital in the world, oversaw the construction of Baptist Memphis and made many other contributions to Baptist and health care nationwide.
